Compliant with Nestlé inks guidance document

Michelman’s digital printing primers

Michelman’s DigiPrime 4431, DigiPrime 050, DigiPrime 680 and Michem In-Line Primer 030 have been confirmed by Nestlé to be compliant with their inks guidance document, which specifically addresses printing inks, lacquers, coatings and varnishes used on Nestlé packaging materials

Michelman’s family of DigiPrime and Michem In-Line primers are used by digital press owners to improve ink receptivity, rub resistance and image quality on most types of paper, plastic and film. “Nestlé compliance opens the doors to new opportunities for our label and packaging printer customers,” said Rick Michelman, executive vice president, chief growth and technology officer at Michelman. “Nestlé is one of the largest food brand owners in the world, and does a significant amount of digital printing around the globe. Our customers are now able to pursue and quote on those Nestlé print jobs when they are using DigiPrime 4431, DigiPrime 050, DigiPrime 680 or Michem In-Line Primer 030 as the primer for their HP Indigo press.”

These Michelman primers are HP-recommended for use in a variety of applications. DigiPrime 4431 is used in offline priming applications, and is suitable for most films and papers. DigiPrime 050 is formulated for in-line use specifically on the HP Indigo 20000 digital press and imparts a print-receptive surface to films for flexible packaging and label applications. DigiPrime 680 is formulated for in-line use on the HP Indigo WS6000 family presses, and is used for flexible packaging films and shrink sleeves. Michem In-Line Primer 030 is formulated for use on the HP Indigo WS600 family presses and is suited for most label substrates.
